Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The US Army requirement for a light utility helicopter was formulated after the Korean War. Bell's Model 204 design won a competition in 1955, and was given the military designation H-40, later renamed the HU-1 Iroquois. The original design called for a helicopter that could be used for transport, airborne battlefield command and control, medical evacuation, fire support co-ordination and search and rescue. Later its missions would be expanded to include troop insertion/extraction, armed escort and special operations. This title details all the technological background behind the development and use of the Huey “Slick” in Vietnam, as well as covering all the major uses that this transport aircraft was put to.

Synopsis:

Design, development and operation of the machinery of war. Each book examines some of the most significant mechanical innovations in the history of land and sea warfare, describing their history, design and deployment. Cutaway artwork reveals the inner workings and construction of each subject. This book traces the development of the Huey, from its deployment in transport, airborne battlefield command and control, medical evacuation, fire support co-ordination and search and rescue, to its later roles in troop insertion and extraction, armed escort and special operations.

Synopsis:

After Korea, the US Army recognised a need for a light utility helicopter for use in battle zones. The original specification was for a machine that could be used for transport, airborne battlefield command and control, medical evacuation, fire support co-ordination and search and rescue - the Huey's brief would later expand to include troop insertion and extraction, armed escort and special operations. Osprey's first-ever airborne New Vanguard examines the technological background of the Huey 'Slick'. its continuing development, and all of its major combat roles.
